Government has been caught conducting an insane
amount of vile, inhumane and grisly experiments
on humans without their consent and often
without their knowledge.
So in light of
recent news of the U.S. infecting Guatemalans
with STDs, here are the 13 most evil, for lack
of a better word, cases of human-testing as
conducted by the United States of America.
Get ready to become
one of those conspiracy theory nuts, because
after this list, you will never fully trust your
1 - Mind
Control, Child Abuse - Project MKULTRA, Subproject 68
This is the stuff of nightmares.
Project MKULTRA paid Dr. Donald
Ewen Cameron for Subproject 68, which would be experiments
involving mind-altering substances. The entire goal of the project
was to probe examination into methods of influencing and controlling
the mind and being able to extract information from resisting minds.
So in order to accomplish this, the doctor took patients admitted to
his Allen Memorial Institute in Montreal and conducted "therapy" on
them. The patients were mostly taken in for issues like bi-polar
depression and anxiety disorders. The treatment they received was
life-altering and scarring.
In the period he was paid for (1957 - 1964) Cameron administered
electroconvulsive therapy at 30-40 times the normal power. He would
put patients into a drug-induced coma for months on-end and playback
tapes of simple statements or repetitive noises over and over again.
The victims forgot how to talk, forgot about their parents, and
suffered serious amnesia.
And all of this was performed on Canadian citizens because the CIA
wasnít willing to risk such operations on Americans.
To ensure that the project remained funded, Cameron, in one scheme,
took his experiments upon admitted children and in one situation had
the child engage in sex with high-ranking government officials and
He and other MKULTRA officers would blackmail the officials to
ensure more funding.
2 - Mustard Gas
Tested on Soldiers via Involuntary Gas Chambers
As bio-weapon research intensified in
the 1940's, officials also began testing its repercussions and
defenses on the Army itself.
In order to test the effectiveness of various bio-weapons, officials
were known to have sprayed mustard gas and other skin-burning,
lung-ruining chemicals, like Lewisite, on soldiers without their
consent or knowledge of the experiment happening to them.
They also tested the effectiveness of gas masks and protective
clothing by locking soldiers in a gas chamber and exposing them to
mustard gas and lewisite, evoking the gas chamber image of Nazi
EFFECTS OF LEWISITE
Lewisite is a gas that can easily
penetrate clothing and even rubber.
Upon contact with the skin, the gas
immediately causes extreme pain, itching, swelling and even a rash.
Large, fluid-filled blisters develop 12 hours after exposure in the
form of intensely severe chemical burns. And that's just skin
contact with the gas.
Inhaling of the gas causes a burning pain in the lungs, sneezing,
vomiting, and pulmonary edema.
EFFECTS OF MUSTARD GAS
Symptomless until about 24 hours after
exposure, Mustard Gas has mutagenic and carcinogenic properties that
have killed many subjected to it.
Its primary effects include severe burns
that turn into yellow-fluid-leaking boils over a period of time.
Although treatment is available, Mustard Gas burns heal very, very
slowly and are extremely painful.
The burns the gas leaves on the skin are
It was also rumored that along with the soldiers, patients at VA
hospitals were being used as guinea pigs for medical experiments
involving bio-warfare chemicals, but that all experiments were
changed to be known as "observations" to ward off suspicions.
3 - U.S. Grants
Immunity to Involuntary-Surgery Monster
As head of Japan's infamous Unit 731 (a covert biological and
chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial
Japanese Army during World War II), Dr.
Shiro Ishii (head of
medicine) carried out violent human experimentation of tens of
thousands during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II.
Ishii was responsible for testing vivisection techniques without any
anesthesia on human prisoners. For the uninitiated, vivisection is
the act of conducting experimental surgery on living creatures (with
central nervousness) and examining their insides for scientific
So basically, he was giving unnecessary surgery to prisoners by
opening them all the way up, keeping them alive and not using any
During these experiments he would also force pregnant women to abort
their babies. He also played God by subjecting his prisoners to
change in physiological conditions and inducing strokes, heart
attacks, frost bite, and hypothermia. Ishii considered these
Following imminent defeat in 1945, Japan blew up the Unity 731
complex and Ishii ordered all the remaining "logs" to be executed.
Not soon after, Ishii was arrested. And then, the
Douglas McArthur allegedly struck a deal with Ishii. If the
U.S. granted Ishii immunity from his crimes, he must exchange all
germ warfare data based on human experimentation.
So Ishii got away with his crimes because the US became interested
in the results of his research.
While not directly responsible for these acts, the actions of the
American government certainly illustrated it was more than willing
to condone human torture for advancements in biological warfare that
could kill even more people.
Not a surprise, considering its past resume. Ishii remained alive
until 1959, performing research into bio-weaponry and probably
thinking up more plans to annihilate people in different, Dr.
Giggles-esque ways to his dying day.
Chemical Sprays on American Cities
Showing once again that the U.S. always tends to test out worse-case
scenarios by getting to them first and with the advent of
biochemical warfare in the mid 20th century, the Army,
CIA and government conducted a series of warfare simulations upon
American cities to see how the effects would play out in the event
of an actual chemical attack.
They conducted the following air strikes/naval attacks:
The CIA released a whooping
cough virus on Tampa Bay, using boats, and so caused a
whooping cough epidemic. 12 people died.
The Navy sprayed San Francisco
with bacterial pathogens and in consequence many citizens
Upon Savannah, GA and Avon Park,
FL, the army released millions of mosquitoes in the hopes
they would spread yellow fever and dengue fever. The swarm
left Americans struggling with fevers, typhoid, respiratory
problems, and the worst, stillborn children.
Even worse was that after the swarm, the
Army came in disguised as public health workers.
intention the entire time they were giving aid to the victims was to
study and chart-out the long term effects of all the illnesses they
5 - US Infects
Guatemalans With STDs
In the 1940's, with penicillin as an established cure for syphilis,
the US decided to
test out its effectiveness on Guatemalan citizens.
To do this, they used infected prostitutes and let them loose on
unknowing prison inmates, insane asylum patients and soldiers. When
spreading the disease through prostitution didn't work as well as
they'd hoped, they instead went for the inoculation route.
Researchers poured syphilis bacteria onto men's penises and on their
forearms and faces. In some cases, they even inoculated the men
through spinal punctures.
After all the infections were transmitted, researchers then gave
most of the subjects treatment, although as many as 1/3 of them
could have been left untreated, even if that was the intention of
the study in the first place.
On October 1, 2010,
Hillary Clinton apologized for the events
and new research has gone on to see if anyone affected is still
alive and afflicted with syphilis. Since many subjects never got
penicillin, its possible and likely that someone spread it to future
6 - Secret
Human Experiments to Test the Effects of The Atomic Bomb
While testing out and trying to harness the power of the atomic
bomb, U.S. scientists also secretly tested the bomb's effects on
Manhattan Project, which gave way to the atomic bomb that
destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, U.S. scientists resorted to secret
human testing via plutonium injection on 18 unsuspecting,
This included injecting soldiers with micrograms of plutonium for
Project Oak Ridge along with later injecting three patients at a
Chicago hospital. Imagine you're an admitted patient, helpless in a
hospital bed, assuming that nothing is wrong when the government
suddenly appears and puts weapons-grade plutonium in your blood.
Out of the 18 patients, who were known only by their code-names and
numbers at the time, only 5 lived longer than 20 years after
Along with plutonium, researchers also had fun with uranium. At a
Massachusetts hospital, between 1946 and 1947, Dr. William Sweet
injected 11 patients with uranium. He was funded by the Manhattan
And in exchange for the uranium he received from the government, he
would keep dead tissue from the body of the people he killed for
scientific analysis on the effects of uranium exposure.
To the left is a video on the Manhattan Project.
7 - Injected
Prisoners with Agent Orange
WARNING: video may be disturbing, but is a reality of what Americans
used as biological warfare during Vietnam and what we, as Americans,
VOLUNTARILY injected into people for "testing" purposes... with the
help of a very popular American company.
Above is a video of what the effects of
Agent Orange can do to children of
parents affected, or even exposed, to it.
While he received funding from the Agent Orange producing Dow
Chemical Company, the US Army, and Johnson & Johnson, Dr. Albert
Kligman used prisoners as subjects in what was deemed
The dermatology aspect was testing out product the effects of Agent
Orange on the skin.
Needless to say the injecting of, or exposure to,
dioxin is beyond
monstrous to voluntarily do to any human. Kligman, though, injected
main component of Agent Orange) into the prisoners to
study its effects.
What did happen was that the prisoners developed an eruption of
chloracne (all that stuff from high school combined with blackheads
and cysts and pustules that looked like the picture shown to the
left) that develop on the cheeks, behind the ears, armpits, and the
groin - yes, the groin.
Kligman was rumored to have injected 468 times the amount he was
authorized to. Documentation of that effect has, wisely, not been
The Army oversaw while Kligman continued to test out skin-burning
chemicals to (in their words) "learn how the skin protects itself
against chronic assault from toxic chemicals, the so-called
hardening process" and test out many products whose effects were
unknown at the time, but with the intent of figuring that out.
During these proceedings, Kligman was reported to have said,
"All I saw before me were acres of
skin... It was like a farmer seeing a fertile field for the
Using that analogy, it's easy to see how
he could plow straight through so many human subjects without an
ounce of sympathy.
8 - Operation
While the Nuremberg trials were being conducted and the ethics and
rights of humanity were under investigation, the U.S. was secretly
taking in Nazi scientists and giving them American identities.
Operation Paperclip, named so
because of the paperclips used to attach the scientists' new
profiles to their US personnel pages, N***s who had worked for in
the infamous human experiments (which included surgically grafting
twins to each other and making then conjoined, removing nerves from
people's bodies without anesthetic, and testing explosion-effects on
them) in Germany brought over their talents to work on a number of
top secret projects for the US.
Given then-President Trumanís anti-Nazi orders, the project was kept
under wraps and the scientists received faked political biographies,
allowing these monsters to live on not only American soil, but as
So while it was not direct experimentation, it was the U.S. taking
some of the worst people in the world and giving them jobs here to
do unknown, horrible experiments/research.
9 - Infecting Puerto
Rico With Cancer
In 1931, Dr. Cornelius (thatís right, Cornelius) Rhoads
was sponsored by
the Rockefeller Institute to
conduct experiments in Puerto Rico. He
infected Puerto Rican
citizens with cancer cells, presumably to study the effects.
Thirteen of them died.
Whatís most striking is that the accusations stem from a note he
"The Porto Ricans (sic) are the
dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever
to inhabit this sphere... I have done my best to further the
process of extermination by killing off eight and transplanting
cancer into several more... All physicians take delight in the
abuse and torture of the unfortunate subjects."
A man that seems to be hell-bent on
killing Puerto Rico through a cancer infestation would not seem a
suitable candidate to be elected by the US to be in charge of
chemical warfare projects and receive a seat on the United States
Atomic Energy Commission, right?
But thatís exactly what happened. He also became vice-president of
the American Cancer Society.
Any shocking documentation that would have happened during his
chemical warfare period would probably have been destroyed by now.
10 - Pentagon Treats
Black Cancer Patients with Extreme Radiation
In the 60ís, the Department of Defense performed a series of
irradiation experiments on non-consenting, poor, African-American
They were told they would be receiving
treatment, but they werenít told it would be the "Pentagon" type of
treatment: meaning to study the effects of high level radiation on
the human body.
To avoid litigation, forms were signed only with initials so that
the patients would have no way to get back at the government.
In a similar case, Dr. Eugene Saenger, funded by the
Defense Atomic Support Agency (fancy name), conducted the same
procedure on the same type of patients. The poor, black Americans
received about the same level of radiation as 7500 x-rays to their
chest would, which caused intense pain, vomiting and bleeding from
their nose and ears.
At least 20 of the subjects died.
11 - Operation
Here's a government experiment that, when you Google it, has
completely different image results than web results.
Operation Midnight Climax involved safe houses in New York
and San Francisco, built for the sole purpose to study LSD effects
on non-consenting individuals.
But in order to lure the individuals there,
the CIA made these safe houses out
to be, wait for it, Brothels. Prostitutes on the CIA payroll (yes,
there was such a thing) lured "clients" back the houses.
Instead of having sex with them, though, they dosed them with a
number of substances, most famously LSD. This also involved
extensive use of marijuana.
The experiments were monitored behind a two-way mirror, kind of like
a sick, twisted peep show.
Furthermore, it's alleged that the officials who ran the experiments
described them as...
"it was fun, fun, fun. Where else
could a red-blooded American boy lie, kill, cheat, steal, rape
and pillage with the sanction and bidding of the All-highest?"
The most horrifying part was the idea of
dosing non-consenting adults with drugs they couldn't possibly know
the effects of.
Embedded is a video of a soldier talking about Operation Midnight
Climax and his experiences with the C.I.A. and the U.S.
12 - Fallout
Radiation on Unsuspecting Pacific Territories
After unleashing hell upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the United States
embarked on numerous thermonuclear bomb tests in the Pacific in
response to increased Soviet bomb activity.
They were intended to be a secret
affair. However, this secrecy would fail.
Detonated in 1954 over Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands,
Bravo was the most powerful nuclear device the US ever set off. What
they didn't expect was for the fallout from the blast to
inadvertently be blown upwind onto nearby residents of other
islands. The suffering included birth defects and radiation
The effects were greater felt in later
years when many children whose parents were exposed to the fallout
developed thyroid cancer and neoplasms.
Project 4.1, a study to examine the effects of
radiation fallout on human beings. Essentially, it was the latest in
a long string of studies where humans act as guinea pigs without
giving consent and a project remembered by the US as a way to gather
data that would otherwise be unobtainable.
The US moral standard that history best
remembers is that even though the radiation fallout on the people of
the Marshall Islands was an accident, it might as well have been
In addition, perhaps as nature's way of adding insult to injury, a
Japanese fishing boat was caught in the fallout. The fishermen all
fell ill and one died, making the Japanese livid that the US was
still affecting them with nuclear devices.
13 - Tuskegee
The recent uncovering of the US exposing Guatemalans to syphilis
brings back to mind this infamous study.
In between 1932 and 1972, researchers
recruited 400 black share-croppers
in Tuskegee, Alabama to study the
natural progression of syphilis.
But the scientists never told the men they had syphilis. Instead,
they went around believing that they were being treated for "bad
blood" disease as researchers used them to find out the extent of
syphilis symptoms and effects.
In 1947, penicillin became the standard cure for syphilis. But along
with withholding information about the disease, scientists also
"forgot" to tell their subjects that what they were being treated
for had a cure. And so the study continued for nearly 30 years more.
Once it was discovered, the backlash to the study was so fierce that
President Bill Clinton made formal apology, stating he was
sorry that the government,
"orchestrated a study that was so
Sadly enough, it would be horrific, but
one of the more docile evil human experiments ever conducted by the
